Kangie

Another legendary trip finished! There is too much to tell, so I will just start by giving some statistics.

Methods of transportation taken:

  • Plane
  • Bus
  • Taxi
  • Rental car
  • Tram
  • Helicopter
  • Boat
  • Train

Places we've seen:

  • Rain forest
  • Coral reefs
  • Huge cities
  • Lovely countryside
  • Beautiful beaches
  • Hot and dry limestone filled desert

Animals we've seen:

  • Koalas
  • Kangaroos
  • Emus
  • No crocodiles... (although we did eat one at a restaurant)
  • Ibis
  • Dolphins
  • Peacocks
  • Penguins (very cute tiny little penguins!)
  • Lots of bats in the park at Sydney

Unexpected expenses:

  • Helicopter flight ^_^
  • Buying an extra air ticket after missing a flight -___-
  • Getting a parking ticket for parking at a wrong place -____-
  • Paying double for the parking ticket because it was easter -__________-
  • Eating out is twice as expensive as Japan!

I was pleasantly surprised by:

  • Grass!
  • Trash cans
  • Free public toilets
  • Friendly natives
  • The 'no worries' lifestyle, especially in Cairns and Perth
  • The price of food in the supermarket. Especially fruit is really cheap

That's all I can think of right now. I'm really sleepy, so I'll post more later!
